Dear Listers-
I have a program that takes about 1/2 hour to run. If I want to fiddle with some post-estimation commands and predictions, is there a way to hold the estimates even if I have to shut down my computer at night? I don't want to have to re-run the program just because I have to shut down or restart the computer.

I thought -estimates hold- might be an option but 1) I didn't know if/how restore worked after the Stata session ends, and 2) I have a simultaneous equations model with more than 20 variables (I only need some of the coefficients in the model for my predictions, however.).
If you want to save estimation results to disk and recall them later with the ability to -predict-, then a good tool is Mike Blasnik's -estsave-. downloadable from SSC. If you only wanted to store estimates, confidence intervals, P-values, number of observations and other estimation results, then use -parmest-, also downloadable from SSC. To install either package within Stata, use the -ssc- command.

I hope this helps.

Roger
